New Delhi: Seeking to put an end to the controversy around sprinter Dutee Chand, Sports Authority of India on Wednesday confirmed that the the athlete had failed the test that was conducted to check the level of androgen in her body.
"We have conducted such a test on one athlete. For confidentiality protocol, the name cannot be disclosed. She will not be allowed to compete in the female category. The test simply tells us that she has excess androgen in her body and is therefore not eligible to compete in the female category," SAI said in a statement.
Dutee Chand's last-minute exclusion from the Indian athletics team for the upcoming Glasgow Commonwealth Games on Tuesday led to speculation over the outcome of the test she reportedly underwent recently in Bangalore.
